SirsiDynix Announces New Faceted Search Product for the Enterprise

SirsiDynix ( announced SirsiDynix Enterprise, a new faceted search product that is designed to provide the foundation for a range of user experience solutions. SirsiDynix Enterprise will be available to users of SirsiDynix OPACs, including SirsiDynix Symphony e-Library, Horizon Information Portal, iBistro, iLink, Ecole, and Web2, in 3Q 2008.

SirsiDynix Enterprise will feature fuzzy search technology, efficient search index updating, intuitive user interfaces, faceted finding aids, multilanguage support, consortia support, deep integration with SirsiDynix integrated library systems, and next-generation OPAC functionality. SirsiDynix Enterprise also provides the groundwork that will support community/social networking capabilities such as user reviews, rankings, and tagging and more in future releases.

The fuzzy search logic is designed to ensure relevant search results even in cases of simple misspelling or variations in suffixes and prefixes. The faceted finding aids allow narrowing of search results by categories, such as author, subject, publication date, and language, so users can easily find specific records within a result set. Facets can be stacked on top of each other, narrowing by subject and then again by publication date, for example. Faceted finding aids take the guesswork out of refining search results and eliminate "dead-ends."
